OPINION: DID OBAMA REALLY ASK ISRAEL TO NOT ATTACK IRAN UNTIL AFTER ELECTION?

March 12, 2012
By CMAC

WHY WOULD ISRAEL EVER LISTEN TO OBAMA OR CARE WHETHER HE GOT RE-ELECTED?

ISRAEL, THIS IS HOW IT WILL PLAY OUT IF YOU ATTACK AFTER THE ELECTION.  OBAMA WILL JOIN THE WORLD IN CONDEMNING ISRAEL FOR ATTACKING IRAN.  HE WILL JOIN SAUDI ARABIA IN ATTACKING ISRAEL FOR ATTACKING IRAN.   HE WILL THUS DO TWO THINGS BY CONDEMNING ISRAEL:

1.   OBAMA WILL MOLLIFY RUSSIA AND CHINA

2.   OBAMA WILL HELP RID  SAUDI ARABIA  OF HER  NUMBER 1 ENEMY: ISRAEL.
